VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK F/W 2015 – DAY 1

It’s that time of year again and a good one at that!

Day 1 of Vancouver Fashion Week brought to us beautiful designs and much anticipated local talent that we have been keeping our eyes on.   Here are our favourites of the evening:

ALEX S. YU

Returning to the VFW catwalk for the second time, Vancouver emerging designer, Alex S. Yu impressed his loyal fans once again with dazzling metalics and fun accents.  Still keeping the same playfulness and use of interesting fabrics and materials as he did in his last collection, this line was inspired by ‘Mean Girls’.

I LOVE CHOC

Dubbed as China’s first you street style fashion brand, I LOVE CHOC brought their ‘1Dollar’ themed collection across the sea to delight our senses.  Another fresh and playful collection for the night with references to dollar bills and my favourite childhood book character (and first ever vinyl) – Pinocchio.   A strong and cohesive collection with its textures and bright primary colours.

YKS

We loved the leather looks by South Korean, YongKyunShin, with the clever cutouts and placement of frills and detailing.  The mixture of fabrics, belts and zippers added to the provocative avant-garde feel of the collection.

CONNALLY MCDOUGAL

Another returning Vancouver favourite, emerging designer, Connally McDougal wowed us with a collection that primarily consisted of deep tones, luxe velvets and rich textures, with slight references to the 20s era.  We loved the brighter patterned print that popped up in various items of clothing with really uplifted the collection, keeping it fresh and youthful.

Style Diary – Vancouver Fashion Week – Day 5

 A smackering of red – THE colour of this fall and winter.  If you don’t want to go full on red from top to toe, this is the perfect way to incorporate it to stay on trend ;p

The Topshop coat pulled this fun back-to-school preppy look together just perfectly and it strangely reminds me of those big storage bags from the $$$ shop in London (my London peeps will know what I’m talking about ;p)

Outfit:  Dress & heels – Jennyfleur Loves / Coat – Topshop / Bag – Winners / Hat – Aritzia / Necklace & tights – H&M

Bump – 24 weeks ;p

Style Diary – Vancouver Fashion Week – Day 3

Graphic prints, sporty street and 60s mod silhouettes!

This was certainly a fun outfit for Vancouver Fashion Week.  I was drawn like a moth to a flame with this bold paintbrush print in a 60s mod style dress. I added a bit of street with the printed leggings and a bit of sporty spice with the mesh layer underneath.  A little contrasting pop of colour never hurt anyone either – so paired it up with my fave blue suede ankle booties ;p

Outfit: Coat, earrings, necklace – Topshop / Dress, mesh top & leggings – H&M / Booties – Aldo / Bag – Winners / Nail polish – Urban Outfitters

Bump: 24 weeks ;p

VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK – S/S 15 – DAY6

By: Nicolette

The final day of VFW crept around far too quick for our liking!  After a week long of ‘frowing’ (one who frequents the front row), the final group of designers was the perfect way to end it all on a high note.  From around the globe, they brought strong collections in a great smorgasbord of quirky, funky, dark and edgy.

Our faves for the night were:

Londoner, Connally McDougall brightened up the room with her neutral and warm yellow ready-to-wear and couture collection.  Made by hand and a lot of love, she uses sustainable fabrics that are rich and diverse in texture.

Tribal funk was woven through every fibre of this exciting collection.  The hair, make-up and accessories were so creative and fun.  Designer, George Styler, who studied fashion in Belgrade, produced an interesting knitwear collection and as in his past collections, portrayed an acceptance of individuality through the freedom of fashion.

Karen Yang brought a fresh and fashion forward collection, with layers of pattern clashes that played off each other perfectly.  Using her cultural insights as inspiration for her quirky and playful designs, this line was certainly a breath of fresh air!

Taking us to the dark side, Vlades’s attention to detail and form was pure magic.  We especially loved the common theme of the cross-over structured fabric panel hanging down in an asymmetric skirt form.  Small details with huge impact.

And lastly, to finish off the night’s variety of different styles, Hong Kiyoung dropped some serious sporty street style with plenty of edge and attitute.  A cohesive androgynous collection that flowed seamlessly from one bold colour palette into the next.
